I'm using ffmpeg for transcoding of my videos on a HP Blade dedicated server with these details:

OS: Windows Server 2012 R2 64Bit
CPU: Intel XEON X5650
Hard disk: A sas normal disk

This command is a sample for creating qualities which has 4K as top level and I use this command for creating lower qualities from that as parallel at the same time.

ffmpeg -i input.mp4 -filter_complex 
-map [v0] -map [v1] -map [v2] -map [v3] -map [v4] -map [v5] -map 0:a 
-c:v libx264 -c:a aac -f tee -g 48 -threads 0 

Some times in transcoding time windows goes to reconnecting and count up to 20 and then goes to black screen. I cannot find anythings in windows logs. And finally I restart server from button of that server. What's hapenning? How can I find a clue, about this issue? Any one know anything about this issue?

  • Is it a single command? If yes then add backslash after every line and use it from a batch file. – Biswapriyo Feb 9 at 8:19

  • Do you have enough free disk space on the system disk? – harrymc Feb 9 at 10:03

  • Ideas: Look in the Event Viewer for information of what happened. Use BlueScreenView to see if you had Windows crashes and to analyze them. – harrymc Feb 9 at 10:41

Tools to analyze such a problem:

  • Look in the Event Viewer for information of what happened.
  • Use BlueScreenView to see if you had Windows crashes and for help in analyzing them.
  • After about 1 week, the server crashed again – parsa Feb 18 at 5:35
  • These are analysis tools. But what have you found? What does BlueScreenView show? Add screenshots if you want us to have a look. Or use another conversion utility. – harrymc Feb 18 at 7:39
  • It showed that log of last crashed that related to hal.dll. I Update hal.dll, but cashing occured again, After last crash, in BlueScreenView there are not any new crash log. But it occured again – parsa Feb 19 at 15:34
  • You can't update hal.dll - it's an essential Windows component that only Windows can update. What was done? – harrymc Feb 19 at 16:06
  • In some servers,hal.dll was update, and in some of servers os couldn't run – parsa Feb 20 at 6:33
